Introduced in 2001, the Aero 8 was notable for several reasons. First, it was the first new Morgan design since 1948. Second, it was also the first Morgan to employ an aluminum chassis and frame as opposed to the wooden body tub and steel chassis in previous models. It was also criticized for its "crosseyed" headlamps, which Morgan fixed in 2007. Replaced by the Aero SuperSports and Aero Coupe, the Aero 8 just made a comeback at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. as Morgan’s range-topping roadster model.

Obviously based on the current Aero Coupe, the Aero 8 features similar exterior styling, an almost identical cockpit, and a BMW-sourced V-8 engine. Of course, the Aero 8 comes with a few unique features of its own and plenty of options buyers can use to customize their roadster into a one-of-a-kind rig. The new Aero 8 will hit showrooms as a limited-edition model for the 2016 model year, when Morgan celebrates 15 years since launching the nameplate, but don’t get your hopes up on seeing it in the U.S. any time soon.

Updated 03/03/2015: Morgan unveiled the 2015 Aero 8 at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show and announced it will enter production in the fourth quarter of 2015.
